'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

“I lost last year, so I had to re-configure,” mused team captain FrankRusty” Marmion. “I stacked it.”

For 41 gents attending the Cummerbund Society's annual pool tourney on Jan. 9 at the Duquesne Club, engaging in some friendly fire was just part of the game. Also expected: that everyone would come dapper and dressed to the nines, as the group name implies.

Since 1988, the society has been hosting the event, raising tens of thousands of dollars for Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC — in particular, for patient care and neonatal research.

“There is a core of about 25 of us who have participated from the start,” said society prez Mac McIlrath.

Greg Slavik walked away with the crown, while Bob Beynon took honors as runner-up.

Other participants included Chuck Voelker, “royal barker” Bob Addleman Jr., greeter Bob Minsterman, Jim Collins, Gary O'Keefe, Mike Assini and Ben Huber.
